Authorities lifted an evacuation order for people who left their homes due to a wildfire in mountains outside Kingman.

Fire officials said crews had made significant progress fighting the 8-square-mile Dean Peak Fire in the Hualapai Mountains.

The blaze was 65 percent contained Sunday.

Officials said a lightning strike 10 miles southeast of Kingman sparked the blaze June 29.
